ariane: JP Morgan shines light on why private equity is looking at BT and other telcos Fibre is likely to lead to lower maintenance costs as more of the network is converted Maintenance costs should fall as fibre roll-out continues BT Group PLC (LON:BT.A) and other European incumbent telecoms groups are in a better cash position than the market believes, suggests US bank JP Morgan. And that might help explain the growing private equity interest in the sector. Only this weekend, Dutch incumbent KPN rejected approaches from two private equity firms: EQT and KKR. BT, meanwhile, has been buoyed by talk of a private equity firm taking a stake to help finance the upgrade of network arm Openreach. JP Morgan notes that cash flow generated by the incumbents has fallen by 65% over the past decade and the outlook still remains uncertain with costs for the switch over to fibre from copper wire rising. This spending is tipped to rise to €8.6bn in 2022 from €3.1bn in 2015, but that should be the peak says JPM and start to decline from 2024. As this starts to occur, free cash flow generated by the telcos should slowly start to rise again suggests the broker, especially as fibre is likely to lead to lower maintenance costs as more of the network is converted. JPM estimates fibre rollout by the incumbents will have risen to 61% on average by 2027 from 30% penetration in 2020. BT, alongside Orange in France and KPN, should do well if this theme plays out suggests the broker, with Orange to be the first to test the idea from 2024 onwards. But JPM admits that it needs more than a better medium-term cash flow profile to be bullish on the telcos currently and points to the growing private equity interest, infrastructure monetisation, and regulatory change as other catalysts. Last month, JPM set a value of £22bn for Openreach and raised its share price target for BT to 230p from 170p. Proactiveinvestors
nige co: BT share price forecast: will the upside potential realise? Https://
colinf63: shocking report of £9bn spent by BT on sports rights = why there has been dismal performance in past few years. No way that was justified by broadband customer retention. Patterson just liked hanging out with footballers, did the same in his role prior to BT. That money would have pretty much covered the whole UK fibre rollout, or obliterated the pension problem. There in a nutshell is why the share price has been so bad in recent years. stick to the knitting - and its a high value,, high div, cash cow, which in the last year has shown how esential a service it provides to consumers and business.
rathkum: BT upgraded as JP Morgan sees Openreach driving recovery If BT can convince investors of the opportunity in fibre, the shares will get a rerating BT Group PLC - Openreach is valued at £22bn by JPM BT Group PLC (LON:BT.A) has been upgraded by JP Morgan, which sees network division Openreach driving a recovery in earnings over the next decade Downgrades at BT have been the theme for the past five years, but this is now changing says the US broker. The telecoms giant expects earnings underlying profits to rebound to £7.9bn ( EBITDA) by year-end March 2023, allowing cashflow to improve even with Openreach's fibre upgrade. Shares have rallied 50% on this prospect, but as it works through its network upgrade JPM sees Openreach’s earnings contribution rising by £1bn (85%) in the long-term. This will feed into BT’s free cashflow, which the broker sees almost trebling to £3.3bn in 2031. If BT can convince investors of the opportunity in fibre, the shares will get a rerating, believes JPM. though in the meantime there are plenty of other catalysts. These include better than expected results; dealing with the pension overhang; lower Premier League football costs; and price rises. ”Given increasing private equity interest in Telco infrastructure, one option would be for BT to monetize a stake in Openreach (look through value), and collateralize a stake with the pension fund (lower future contributions). JPM has a value of £22bn for Openreach and raised its share price target for BT to 230p from 170p.
diku: Just few days ago BT and VOD share price were level pegging...BT share price rises but VOD price doesn't BT price has to be curtailed back...somebody is calling the shots here and it ain't BT......
brucie5: Thanks Nige, so that's about 5.8% on current share price. I'll be happy with that if we get a progressive policy going forward, and of course, on the back of returning value to share price. I think the recent crisis, nasty as it has been, will mark the turn in BT's fortunes, as well as emphasising how dependent we all are on Openreach! BT is always going to an elephant, so as Jim Slater some might say, unlikely to gallop; but it may also demonstrate a flywheel effect once it gets going. And £2 is a natural short term target. That is to say, 70% appreciation inside 18 months.
nige co: Kenyansaiyan1, you need to multiply the amount of shares by the share price. Example 220 shares X share price of 129.60p = £285,12p.
careful: Tesla would claim there is no chance of paying a dividend because they make no profit. As to the share price, just think about Gamestop. The last two weeks have been an education for many as to the reality of inflated share prices. Everyone who owns Tesla feel rich. But if just 5-10% of investors tried to turn this imagined wealth into cash, then the share price would collapse. Same with Bitcoin. Winners on the way up = losers on the way down. Spivs vs Suckers. There are a lot of Gamestop type shares out there. Hang on to BT, a real company, great value.
diku: If the share price keeps going up and no divi why have the divi...just like the US companies...they prefer share price growth...
nige co: The share price is being held back, but it won't last forever, just imagine that the share price is still valued at 100p in 2025 when BT will have annual cost savings of £2 billion, BT could by back a hell of a lot of shares with the cost savings. The share price will recover. Be patient guys, Rome wasn't built in a day. Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey.
